Sustainability on agenda for Ladysmith meeting

Open house planned for Sept 12 at Aggie Hall

  • Sep. 6, 2011 1:00 p.m.

Ladysmith residents are invited to have their say on the town’s sustainability.

 

There is a meeting scheduled for September 12 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Aggie Hall to talk about what steps the town will take next.

 

City Manager Ruth Malli said the public meeting is to build on the visioning process undertaken in 2008 and 2009.

 

“It will be highly participatory,” said Malli, adding some of the meeting will also be used to talk about the progress the town has made in the last few years.

 

“Then we will be looking at what do we do next.”

 

Sustainability is normally a three-pronged term dealing with social, environmental and economic.

The town’s visioning adds partnerships and encompasses not only the natural environment, but also what we’ve built (buildings and infrastructure).

 

“We think that partnerships are a strong way to be sustainable,” said Malli.

 

“We can’t afford to deliver everything so we do a lot of partnerships with service groups and with the community.”

 

People are encouraged to attend the meeting even if they have not gone through the town’s visioning document.

 

“They don’t need to do anything except show up.”

 

If you have any questions, please call Malli at City Hall.

 

The visioning document is also available at www.ladysmith.ca. Click the City Hall tab and click on the Bylaws, Forms, Permits and Reports.
